These tunes are a must for parties, sports celebrations or simply family gatherings.
Some of them have crossed borders and are sung in many bars, taverns and leisure centers, since after much hearing, they have become a kind of hymn that unite more than one. Others are clearly a cry of Mexican pride that few will be able to understand, songs that fill the heart and that will be forever.

Regional Mexican music
What is considered regional Mexican music is not as old as it might seem, since the term appears at the end of the 20th century. It is a very complete musical genre that encompasses many styles (such as corridos).
The artists who perform this genre are very different from each other, but with a very marked similarity: the costumes used may resemble (broadly speaking) cowboy or cowgirl, with certain exceptions. Depending on the subgenre, they will have a different way of dressing.
Although many will know cumbia for being of Colombian origin, it is true that in Mexico it has also won a place in the hearts of many. It is characterized by its songs with African rhythms and with instruments such as maracas or percussion.
It was before the end of the 20th century when it arrived in Mexico thanks to Colombian and Mexican musicians who made unusual compositions that resembled Colombian cumbia with their own touches. One of the most popular Mexican cumbia groups are Los Ángeles Azules, originally from Mexico City, they have played in one of the most popular festivals internationally: Coachella.
